Market Interpretation:

Last week’s action continued to show overwhelming signs of institutional accumulation.  Money continues to flow into medical, financial, tech, and consumer groups.  Housing remains robust.  With leading stocks acting well and the indices trending higher, earnings will take center stage this week.  Earnings reports are not necessarily about reporting a greater number than expected.  There may be many acute reasons that stocks failed to impress in the fourth quarter, including the hurricane, weather, fiscal cliff, and election uncertainty.  Yet, stocks that issue forward guidance that exceeds expectations may have positive reactions in a market environment that is forward looking.

Joel’s Take:

Earnings reports are the immediate focus.  Stocks that have accelerating current earnings have historically been the biggest winners.  Leadership can change quickly during earnings, so it is important to be prepared and to act quickly, as the facts change.

With the market trend remaining strong, it remains a time to maintain exposure to stocks.  The market is not significantly extended, but it would not be unusual for it to pull back in coming weeks.  Balancing exposure to the market by adding gradually over time, at proper buy points is a good way to prepare for an eventual short-term correction or pullback.  It makes it likely that you won’t have much stock that is underwater.
